Snoop Dogg may have forgotten requesting a free Tesla two years ago, but the response from Elon Musk was pretty savage.
The Tesla CEO finally got around to replying to Snoop Dogg’s video – and he did not take kindly to being called out.
However, it seemed Snoop Dogg had a good reason to expect one.
“This is a message for Elon Musk,” Snoop Dogg begins in his OG video posted in April 2022.
“Nephew: I need a Tesla.
“When your peoples came to my show, they told me they was gonna get me one.”
He continued: “I’m still waiting… do I have to buy one or you gonna send me one?”
“It’s the D-O-Dub, cuz. Get to it and do it, and congrats on Twitter.”
However, far from being swift in his response, Elon Musk had an answer two years later – and it was pretty blunt.
“Everyone pays full price … including me,” said Musk in a post on X in response.
Dogg is already a Tesla owner.
Long before this apparent interaction, Snoop Dogg purchased a white Model X SUV in 2017.
He posted a video of his new ride to Instagram.
Even Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, reportedly paid full price for her Tesla, with her son proffering no friends and family discount.
” Hey @SnoopDogg even Elons’ Momma paid full price for her Tesla….!!” said one comment.
When a family member requested a discount, Musk apparently responded: “Everybody’s family when you buy a Tesla.”
There’s a reason why Musk is set to become the world’s first trillionaire.
Many X users were outraged at the rapper and entrepreneur’s request.
“You’ll have to buy one! Like the rest of us. Can you not afford one!?”
As of 2023 Snoop Dogg had a net worth of $160 million – in fact he recently revealed how much Spotify paid him for one billion streams.
What’s more, the mansion he bought for $700k in 1998 is now worth astonishing amount.
However, he was defended by some with one comment in response: “He was promised.”
He has a point.
